23 Aug, 2023 – Surat: Navitas Solar, a leading module manufacturing company from Surat, is contributing to the well-being of the communities through various initiatives in education, environment, and skill development as a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
CSR initiatives undertaken by Navitas Solar have touched thousands of lives and are playing a key role in ushering in a brighter future for marginalised communities.
Navitas Solar has always considered sustainable development as the cornerstone of its business strategy and has sought to achieve sustainable growth by creating thriving ecosystems that not only benefit its businesses but also the communities it operates in. By fostering close communication and forging symbiotic relationships, Navitas is actively bringing qualitative changes in the lives of the underprivileged.
Navitas Solar’s CSR agenda gives utmost priority to tribal development. Partnering with Sanskar Shiksha Kendra, the company has focused on enhancing the lives of tribal communities through dedicated educational sessions that promote holistic well-being and help in giving up addictions. Navitas Solar has adopted 140 villages in Gujarat, underscoring its commitment to making a meaningful and lasting impact.
Navitas Solar also undertook the Pulwama Shahid Vann project in collaboration with Forest Creators. The initiative involves planting 40,000 trees, paying homage to the 40 soldiers who laid down their lives in the Pulwama terror attack. The initiative is an apt tribute to the ultimate sacrifice of the soldiers and also contributes to a greener future. Additionally, Navitas Solar has planted over 5,000 trees across Gujarat, reflecting its commitment to the environment.
Vineet Mittal, Director, Finance & Strategy, Navitas Solar, said, “At Navitas Solar, we firmly believe that societal contribution is the true measure of a business’s success. Our CSR initiatives showcase our commitment to sustainable development and community empowerment. We are laying the foundation for a brighter and more equitable future with our CSR initiatives and are committed to supporting the betterment and upliftment of local communities.”
Navitas Solar’s dedication to education is evident in its association with Round Table Foundation, which provides care and education to underprivileged children at ashram shalas in rural areas. The association ensures that children have access to education and a nurturing environment.
Recognising the importance of skill development, Navitas Solar has partnered with Anil Naik Technical Training Centre to empower school dropouts in villages in south Gujarat with skill training. Navitas Solar is the Centre’s industry partner for providing training as solar power technicians and supports the Centre with technical expertise in line with the latest developments in the solar power sector and also extends placement opportunities.
